Jail Bharo Tehreek to kick-off from Wednesday, 22nd February


The Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and former Prime Minister, Imran Khan has announced kickstarting the ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek’ from Wednesday, starting from Lahore.

During his address to the nation via video link from Lahore’s Zaman Park residence on Friday, the PTI Chairman Imran Khan has blamed the incumbent coalition government for its “political victimisation” of his party leaders and allies. He said that they will fill jails and the authorities will have no space left to hide.

In the wake of sedition cases filed against his party leaders including Fawad Chaudhry, Azam Swati and Shahbaz Gill, Imran Khan on February 4 announced “Jail Bharo Tehreek” and asked PTI workers and supporters to prepare for movement across the country. He said that they want to enslave us by threatening to put us in jails. He vowed to fulfil the wish of authorities.

The former Prime Minister claimed that the police entered the homes of PTI workers in Multan and were tasked with such threatening tactics. If this work is being done by the police, then won’t the people hate them?

Imran Khan said that the interim government is strongly against the PTI. He said that the man with a questionable character was brought in. We have a list of 23 people who had inflicted atrocities of which 16 were brought in.

The PTI Chairman also recalled the torture inflicted on his party’s leaders highlighting the treatment meted out to Swati, Gill and Fawad. Never in history have such acts been committed against political opponents, he added.
